Global Top 100 Geospatial Companies

Spottitt Named One of the Global Top 100 Geospatial Companies of 2023 

Spottitt named as one of the Global Top 100 Geospatial Companies of 2023, an annual list of the best geospatial companies in the world as determined by an expert committee and Geoawesomeness, the world’s largest geospatial community. 

Lucy Kennedy, Spottitt co-founder and CEO: “First of all, it is great to have all the hard work of Spottitt’s growing team get recognized. But also, it is super exciting to see how the value of geospatial data and analytics derived from satellites is becoming better understood across multiple markets.”

“We are grateful to Geoawesomeness for listing Spottitt in this year’s list of the top geospatial companies, – added Niccolo Teodori, Spottitt Chief Growth Officer. – Two years ago, when we started our growth journey, after extensive R&D, we only had a handful of customers believing in us. Today, we are a key player for infrastructure owners looking for easy and powerful geospatial data at scale. And this is only the beginning!”

This year the Geoawesomeness team reviewed over 800 companies and created a shortlist of 262. These were voted then by the expert committee of 16 members, who helped decide the final list.

“The annual list is an essential source of information about companies that are utilizing geospatial data and tools to solve problems,” said Muthukumar Kumar, managing partner at Geoawesomeness“ and is aimed to help our community make sense of the ever-changing geospatial industry ecosystem.” 

Geoawesomeness has been at the forefront of identifying industry trends for over a decade. We are grateful to all members of our expert committee for their time and critical inputs in helping shape this year’s list,” added Aleksander Buczkowski, founder and editor-in-chief, Geoawesomeness.

InSAR Analysis and Corner Reflector Experiments for Infrastructure Stability Monitoring Using Sentinel-1 Imagery

National Grid Energy Transmissions (NGET), which owns and maintains the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales, conducts invasive analysis annually to monitor the towers most at risk of movement. Moreover, the NGET inspection teams perform annual line walking activities and monthly substation inspections during which they visually assess the presence of asset motion. These interventions are crucial to avoid issues which may cause expensive assets replacements or reconstruction. It costs NGET over £6 million per year to monitor only 1% of their most at risk assets.


Utilizing Satellite Data to Mitigate Pipeline Failures and Risks

The operation of oil and gas transmission pipelines entails inherent risks associated with the potential for unintentional product releases. Oil and gas product releases have traditionally been treated as safety issues due to the risk of explosions and asphyxiation, but increasingly, the environmental impact of unintentional product releases is fast becoming the key risk to be reduced and avoided via Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) programs.

Behind the Spottitt MF Curtains: Role of Machine Learning in Analyzing Satellite Imagery

Spottitt is known for utilising satellite data to offer infrastructure owners valuable insights into the diverse external risks affecting their assets. But how precisely do we derive these insights from satellite imagery? The answer is – machine learning, and today we’re inviting you behind the curtains of our product to unveil the whole process.

Spottitt Metrics Factory Advances to the Next Level

As more organizations turned to Spottitt for monitoring growing numbers of assets, we recognized that the traditional geospatial platform’s map view, which was effective for small-scale monitoring, became cumbersome when dealing with larger datasets. So, we embarked on the development of Spottitt Metrics Factory. Since its beta launch in late 2022, ten organizations from around the world have been delighting in the ability to view and interact with their asset monitoring data using the product.

Top 10 Myths About Satellite Images and Analytics for Asset Monitoring. Part 2

In this piece, we delve into the realm of satellite technology, focusing on the determination of vegetation height and the planning of routes for electrical distribution lines.
Additionally, we examine the algorithm that empowers open-source meters in resolution SAR sensors to measure millimeters per year of land or asset motion. We also provide an overview of the driving forces behind the application of satellite technology for monitoring methane and other greenhouse gases.
